All American: Homecoming and Naomi Both Ordered to Series by the CW, Painkiller and Our Ladies Of Brooklyn Passed Over

Weeks after the big four networks made their pickups for the 2021-22 season, The CW has picked up multiple projects for next season.

All American: Homecoming is a spinoff of All American, which started its run on the CW as a flop but grew massively in popularity thanks to Netflix exposure and now rates as the network's top performer. Homecoming aired its backdoor pilot earlier this year and follows a young tennis star from Beverly Hills and an elite baseball player from Chicago as they deal with the high stakes of college sports at a Historically Black College. Geffri Maya, Peyton Alex Smith, Kelly Jenrette, Cory Hardrict, Sylvester Powell, Netta Walker and Camille Hyde will star.

Naomi, written and produced by Ava DuVernay, centers on teen girl Naomi’s journey from her small northwestern town to the heights of the Multiverse. After a supernatural event shakes her hometown to the core, she sets out to uncover its origins, and what she discovers will challenge everything we believe about our heroes. Kaci Walfall will play the titular character.

The CW has also passed on ordering Black Lightning spinoff Painkiller and original dramedy concept Our Ladies of Brooklyn, from Jane the Virgin creator Jennie Snyder Urman. Powerpuff, the live-action adaptation of the Powerpuff Girls, will be shooting a new pilot. Tom Swift, the Nancy Drew spinoff project, has not yet been ordered or passed over, and it remains in contention.
